Getting those joints to work proper is one thing. To ensure some durability to the mechanical longevity is another. Been working these ideas for years now, and I found that several joint designs are better that one. Some designs work better than others when customizing micros. It really does depend on the weight, design and […]Read more "Those Micro-Joints"

Though, I suppose I would like to work with my feet too, but some things just are not meant to be i guess, so I work my hands. Solid. The ‘Micro-Mashed’ help out with several W.I.P.
